Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

The Human League - Human

'Human' is a song recorded by the British synthpop band The Human League. It was released as the first single from their 1986 album Crash. The track was written and produced by US producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The single is a mid-tempo ballad which lyrically is an exchange between a man and a woman in a relationship who have reunited after a separation. In the first two verses Phil Oakey is apologizing to his partner for being unfaithful during her absence, and in the song's breakdown Joanne Catherall's spoken-word confession reveals that she too was unfaithful. The song's title is derived from the chorus, in which both parties in the relationship explain that they are 'only human' and 'born to make mistakes'.

'Human' eventually made it to number 8 in the UK singles chart while it also became the second million-selling number-one single for The Human League on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 (after 'Don't You Want Me') and their second chart-topper on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart (after '(Keep Feeling) Fascination'). Jam and Lewis' R&B-based production was also popular on American urban radio, bringing the Human League into the top ten of the U.S. R&B chart for the first time.

It was a welcome success for the Human League, who were starting to suffer from creative stagnation and a slight decline in fortunes after a hugely successful start to the 1980s. The Music Video for 'Human' was filmed in London during June 1986. It is heavily stylized to give a 'water reflective' effect and blue hue throughout. In the first time that the band had been presented as a 'Phil and the girls' trio, images of Oakey, Catherall and Sulley are constantly layered and blended. The video was conceived and directed by Andy Morahan.
